This is an official statement from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan on the passing of legendary
It is with great pain and sorrow that we reflect on and mourn the loss of this magnificent woman of extreme value. Her value is not only the beautiful gift of her voice, but also the sweetness of her soul, and the deep sensitivity that was her gift, to feel the hurt and pain throughout the world.
As a people, we needed some form of relief or balm for our wounded soul. Her root was Allah (God), and His Christ and her love for Allah (God) and the wonderful preaching and guidance of her father. She, therefore, offered the gift of her being and life to all of us, who have benefited from her life. Starting with the songs she sang in church and every song that she recorded, whether gospel or otherwise, all touched the souls of those who were uplifted by the majesty of her voice.
Her songs, her soul and her voice did not only reach our ears, but reached our hearts, our souls, and our spirits to lift us above where we were and caused us to survive the horror, the tyranny of our painful existence as ex-slaves, free slaves, Jim Crow sufferers, our souls yearned for relief. She supplied that balm to our pain.
In 1972, when I was minister in New York City, Temple No. 7, the police attacked our mosque. Within a few hours, Aretha Franklin came to the mosque, to my office, and said that she saw the news and came as quickly as she could to stand with us and offer us her support. She asked me if Rev. Jesse Jackson had been there to show support. I said, not yet. She said, he’ll be here within 48 hours. Rev. Jackson came and stood with the Muslims. We marveled at her show of courage, fearlessness which was rooted in her profound love for her people and her desire for justice for us. Her activism, her selflessness caused her to stand with Dr. Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement as she joined the struggle of our people for liberty, equity and justice.
I am personally grateful to Allah (God) for her presence in this world. I am grateful that her voice caused many to survive another day, another week, another year. She could never know how many lives her songs, her soul, have actually saved.
Allah (God) has taken this precious soul back to Himself. We, however, are left with the sweet memory of our communion with her. We thank Allah (God) for her. We praise Allah (God) for the gift He gave to her for us and the world.
I will cherish her life, her voice, and her soul and remember her with deep and abiding love for what she did for me, our people and for all of humanity who were blessed by her time and service among us.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
National Representative of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and the Lost Found Nation of Islam in the West
Aretha Franklin: Our Queen And Our Giant In The Black Struggle… I am personally grateful to Allah (God) for her presence in this world. I am grateful that her voice caused many to survive another day, another week, another year. She could never know how many lives her songs, her soul, have actually saved. Allah (God) has taken this precious soul back to Himself. We, however, are left with the sweet memory of our communion with her. We thank Allah (God) for her. We praise Allah (God) for the gift He gave to her for us and the world.

The recent decision by Netflix to cancel a documentary about the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam isn’t really about the movie not being seen. It is about a relentless campaign to smear, isolate and destroy a man who has devoted his life to Black people and the cause of freedom, justice and equality.
Destroy? Isn’t that a rather strong word? Not really.
If you look at history you know that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had a domestic counterintelligence program. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover wrote in a 1967 directive, “The purpose of this new counterintelligence endeavor is to expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit or otherwise neutralize the activities of black-nationalist, hate-type organizations and groupings, their leadership, spokesmen, membership and supporters.”
One of the meanings of neutralize is to “kill,” or “destroy.”
The FBI’s domestic war pitted Black groups across the political spectrum, from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and civil rights groups to the revolutionary Black Panther Party, against one another. FBI operatives also infiltrated these groups and pit members against one another. Then there were assassinations, like the 1969 killing of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton in Chicago. The FBI operation knew virtually no bounds and in its efforts to destroy the Nation of Islam and other groups.
So, if the government worked to destroy a movement yesterday and a man resurrected that movement today, is it possible that the man would be left alone? Emphatically not! When he brought back the Nation, beginning his work in the late 1970s, Min. Farrakhan was clearly a threat. His uncompromising voice and his independent support base only added to the desire to destroy him.
When he called nearly two million Black men to Washington, D.C. in 1995, despite ridicule and no help from major corporations, civil rights groups, unions, political organizations or sponsors, the Minister’s threat level rose even higher.
Despite a media disinformation campaign, including a widespread media white-out for some 15 years, Min. Farrakhan has kept working and challenging the evils of America. He has traveled abroad and made international connections while condemning the evil of the U.S. government, which Dr. King called the “greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.”
The Minister was sanctioned by the Senate in 1984, with no Blacks in the upper chamber of Congress, and a federal lawmaker from Indiana is seeking House sanction of a man who is not a government official and who has never even been arrested.
While the media assaults have been constant, an onslaught has come full force since February 2018. Alongside the “condemn Farrakhan” chorus of the enemy is the effort to punish, kowtow, bludgeon and smite anyone who comes near Min. Farrakhan. We saw that with the pitiful yelps of Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) declaring he wasn’t with Farrakhan and the pressure exerted on activist and Women’s March co-chair Tamika Mallory by those who hate a man Black America and others love.
Scripture shows us Pharaoh worried about the growth of the children of Israel and wisely tried to destroy them. Pharaoh feared the children of Israel would join onto an enemy and come against those who had oppressed them. Biblical rulers also sought to find and kill deliverers, just look at the stories of Moses and Jesus. Is this a prophecy that points to today or a work of fiction and relic from yesterday?
The divine word, if understood, shows us what is happening today using signs and symbols of yesterday.
Blacks in America fulfill the prophetic picture of the children of Israel and the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, patriarch of the Nation of Islam, is the modern Moses, and Min. Farrakhan is the modern Aaron. And, there has always been a fear that Blacks might join on to a foreign enemy or become a domestic threat inside the United States of America. That’s one of the reasons for the super-surveillance and over-policing of Black people and targeting of Black organizations.
Also pushing the federal government are the wicked members of the Jewish community, who have opposed every good deed and all of the good works of a good man.
According to the New York Times, Jewish groups pressured Netflix to drop the documentary.
“This film will not be released on Netflix. Due to an internal miscommunication, it appeared to be scheduled for release on Netflix, but it is not. We apologize for any confusion this has caused,” a Netflix spokesperson said Aug. 1.
But the Minister’s documentary was to appear on the global streaming platform with promos of the movie cited in overseas listings.
The Nation of Islam, in a statement, said: “The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan produced a documentary entitled, ‘My Life’s Journey Through Music’.
“As late as July 30, 2018, Netflix published that this documentary would be ‘Coming August 1’ on its media platform. On July 31, 2018, less than 24 hours before the airing of the documentary, the Nation of Islam became aware through news and online outlets that Netflix decided not to air it due to ‘internal miscommunication’.
“The Nation of Islam has not been informed of what was the alleged ‘internal miscommunication’. The timing of Netflix’s decision—at the 11th hour—to cancel the airing of the documentary affected millions of potential viewers and raises more questions than answers:
“In light of this untimely sequence of events, did Netflix bow to outside forces in canceling the airing of the documentary?
“Did media pressure contribute to this result?”
Consider that. Why this one man, why the unceasing opposition, why the rabid reactions?
Why separation will prove to be the only answer to The Problem between the Black man and woman and the White people of America.

I thank Allah (God) so much for remembering His promise to Abraham, that his seed would be a stranger in a land that is not theirs and they would serve a strange people in that strange land who would afflict them for 400 years; but He said to Abraham: “After that time I will come, and I will judge that nation which they shall serve, and afterwards shall they come out with great substance.” That’s a great promise—and Allah (God) never breaks His promise.
Black people have wondered, “Why, God, have You allowed us to suffer like this? What have we done to deserve what You have caused to be put upon us?” And the scripture teaches of Jesus: When he met the man born blind, and the disciples asked him, “Who did sin? Did he or his parents?,” Jesus answered, “Neither did his parents sin, nor did he sin. He is born blind, that the works of God may be manifest in him.” (John 9:1-3) In other words, his suffering was a part of a well-thought-out plan; that Satan would have his (Abraham’s) seed and put the seed into such a condition that only He (God) could get them out of it. In essence, we were put in this condition so that the people who have not known God in these last 6,000 years of the rule of a strange people: that our rise on The Call of God when He comes would make Him known to a world that has not known Him. They know of Him—we talk about “God”; but in that day, His people are going to learn about Him, and have a personal relationship with Him. And as the scripture teaches (Ezekiel 37:13): “When (not if, “when”) I have raised you out of your graves, then shall you know that I, The Lord, am God, and beside Me there is no Saviour!”
I greet you, my dear brothers and sisters, thanking Allah for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, this great master teacher that I have been blessed to be taught by. Today, we want to know him better, and we want to know Al Mahdi, his Teacher, better.
Keys for enduring trials
Sometimes in a basketball season, you have to have someone do an extraordinary thing to seal the knowledge that he or she is “the best.” You can’t claim to be the best until you have shown your prowess and defeated all the rest.
God allowed Pharaoh to become great: He allowed Pharaoh to be looked upon by the people as a god beside God; so, He had to show on His coming that He, in fact, was God. He was so much of a God that He took one of the slaves and made him a god over Pharaoh, to declare to the world that the one that He made a god over Pharaoh was one of millions that He would bring back to where they originally were.
I have been among you a long time … and the scripture says you would treat me “like a lovely song”—like it was with David. The scripture teaches that he had “a lovely-sounding voice, and he played well on an instrument.” But the people: Even though they loved to hear him, they hardly ever did what he taught them; but after he was gone from among them, they really recognized that a prophet of God was among them.
Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, lived for 62 1/2 years. Do you know that I have been preaching this word in America for all the years of The Prophet’s life? Sometimes people, when they walked by Noah, they laughed at him and mocked him. I said, “Poor man! A prophet of God was building an ‘ark’ (a ship, a boat) in a desert where it doesn’t rain.” When I think on Noah, I’m so inspired, because I can imagine this poor man, with his poor little family around him, whispering: “I think daddy is … I think he’s ‘off’ a little bit. Don’t tell him I said this, but for him to be talking about a flood, water coming—and we haven’t seen water in a long, long time. …” That poor man, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, taught for 150 years. So, people want to know: “Well, why do you keep saying the same thing over and over again, Farrakhan? I heard this yesterday. I heard it the day before. I heard it 10 years ago, I’ve been listening to you. … When is the ‘new’ message coming?”
I say, “Why do you think you deserve a new message when you have never acted on the old message that you received?” When a man stays this long on a post teaching his people, either he is crazy, or, he believes so thoroughly in what he is teaching, and he knows the results of what he is teaching, that it doesn’t bother him (the insults of the people and their mockery of him), because all the prophets knew they would be the winner in the end. When they came, the prophets threatened the people. Not that they had the power to fulfill the threat, but the word of God always is accompanied from the mouth of a prophet with a threat. The people, after they heard the threat so many times, said: “Why don’t you bring on us what you threaten us with?” The prophets would say, “Wait. I, too, am waiting.”
Minister Farrakhan goes to the root of attacks on the Nation and deeply rooted evildoing of the Synagogue of Satan
CHICAGO (Mosque Maryam)—When God’s servants are commanded to speak his words, they have no choice but to obey, despite hardship, public censure or persecution, said the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan in a major address at the Nation of Islam’s headquarters.
Today that means condemning and unmasking evil and confronting devilish Zionists, powerful people in the Jewish community who use knowledge and influence in opposition to the commands of God, he said. They are part of the Synagogue of Satan, which includes people of different races and religions, who deliberately engage in evil and promote immorality, said Min. Farrakhan.
Since a message to close the Nation of Islam’s convention in February, the Jewish community has pushed an unrelenting campaign to condemn and isolate Min. Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Jewish media, right wing media and mainstream media miscast the Minister’s words as anti-Semitic as he criticized Jewish behavior, pointed out their wrongdoing and refused to back down from confronting their paternalistic relationship with Black America.
